During his two-decade tenure with Grainger companies, Kevin Weadick demonstrated his versatility across multiple countries and diverse divisions including supply chain, marketing and product management. However, the pinnacle of his Grainger career was the role of president for the company’s B2B marketplace, Zoro.
Given his remarkable track record, it’s no surprise that when FleetPride embarked on its quest for a new CEO, Kevin emerged as an exceptional candidate. Few can boast of extensive experience within a prominent branch-based distribution business coupled with a history of accomplishments in digital commerce, exemplified by his achievements at Zoro, a 100% online company.
At Zoro, it wasn’t just about sales growth; the company’s outstanding culture earned it accolades as an exemplary employer.
Now CEO of FleetPride, Kevin is committed to replicating this culture success. He is also focused on strategically integrating digital solutions alongside FleetPride’s existing branch and sales strategy and expanding the company’s emerging service channel.
All of this is in service to the company’s core purpose: “FleetPride keeps the country running.”
